Matt Damon, Ben Affleck, judging and producing your Obama ads
Matt Damon and musician John Legend have teamed up with MoveOn.org to sponsor an "Obama in 30 Seconds ad contest.

The ad of the winner "will run on national television,'' says MoveOn.org, the political organization that is backing Obama's campaign for president.

"MoveOn.org joined forces today with Academy Award-winners Ben Affleck (pictured at the right), Matt Damon (pictured below) and Oliver Stone, multiple Grammy-winner John Legend and author Naomi Wolf to announce a new ad contest, Obama in 30 Seconds,'' the group announced today with a star-studded lineup of judges. "The contest provides a platform for Obama supporters to show in 30-second spots what inspires them about the Senators candidacy. MoveOn will buy time to run the winning ad on national television. ''

15. Will it be like their crappy Jimmy Kimmel stuff?
Kimmel has been running that stupid video, "I'm F*****g Ben Affleck" and the video that started it all, "I'm F*****g Matt Damon" by his goth girlfriend for the last two weeks. Apparently all parties involved think it's the funniest thing since the invention of the rubber chicken.

I'm shuddering to think what the resultant winning ad will look like. Probably it'll have Obama picking cotton; that's the level of humor these dimwits possess.

18. So where are the QUALIFIED filmmakers, Ichingcarpenter?
Why aren't genuine filmmakers, outside of the Kimmel fratboy pack, making Obama commercials? There are probably five hundred more qualified people doing good, smart, and genuinely funny PR for Obama over on YouTube. But these Hollywood handi-wipes get involved and everyone gets excited. I stand by my comment.

The Talented Mr. Ripley, Saving Private Ryan....Matt Damon is an awesome actor.

Affleck? Well, he's a talentless buffoon. :)
